223,000,000 - 23,900,000 = 200,000,000
This is a lot of users! I will try give that number some perspective.
- 200 million was the total population of the earth at the time of Jesus' birth. Now that would be one person I would add to my circles.
- 200 million is 60 kilometres of business cards stacked on top of each other.
- 200 million seconds is 6 years 4 months.
I have high hopes for this social network and I do hope that Google keeps it word in that they will do no harm. My methodology does need some work, but it is better than Facebook's method of just telling you how many email addresses have registered on Facebook (800 million). I know people who have 3 Facebook profiles.
